Cayetano family shows up in Malacañang as Speakership row escalates
Duterte met late Wednesday with the incumbent Speaker, his wife Taguig Rep. Lani, sister Sen. Pia Cayetano, and Deputy House Speaker Bro. Eddie Villanueva, said Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque in a press briefing Thursday. According to Roque, what was scheduled last night was a meeting between Villanueva and Duterte for a "pray over."
It was not immediately clear how the Cayetanos figured in the said gathering. "Nagkataon lang naman po na ang pangyayari sa Kamara kahapon ay nangyari sa scheduled meeting sa panig ni Deputy Speaker Eddie [Villanueva] at Presidente," Roque said.
(It just so happened that what happened yesterday at the House of Representatives coincided with the scheduled meeting later in the day between Deputy Speaker Eddie and the President.)The House Speaker on Wednesday afternoon delivered a scathing privilege speech against Marinduque Rep. Lord Allan Velasco, with whom he has a term-sharing deal for the chamber's leadership throughout the duration of the 18th Congress.
Under the "gentleman's agreement" brokered by Duterte last year, Cayetano was to hand over the reins of the House to Velasco after 15 months, which counts to October this year. Velasco, then, will serve for the remaining 21 months.In his speech, Cayetano described Velasco as eager but unready to occupy the chamber's top post.
